Nursing guilt; VOICE OF THE.
THE exhausted nurse who quit the NHS because she couldn't cope with the guilt of providing poor care speaks for many in a dedicated profession.
More nurses leaving than starting is a damning indictment of falling morale, with years of training going down the pan when a dream job turns into a nightmare.
Treating nurses badly was short-sighted by the Tories, reducing the value of their earnings while at the same time forcing them to work longer for worse pensions. It was never likely to make staff feel valued.
But nurses are now walking away over fears for the safety of patients. At least they care, unlike hapless Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.
